Emotional regulation applied to physical and behavioural disorders caused or aggravated by psychological factors. 

Today it is scientifically recognized that even though emotions may not always be the source of physical or behavioral disorders, they always aggravate the symptoms.

Psychosomatic reactions
Our emotions cause biological stress. This stress, if it is intense or repetitive, attacks the most vulnerable parts of our body. Under these conditions, the body will deteriorate for as long as the emotion persists. To help our body repair itself, we need to regulate the emotional stress.

Recurring and stereotyped behaviors
So as not to suffer from certain conscious and subconscious emotional disorders we substitute them with other behaviors – addictions, compulsive reactions, controlling behavior, avoidance – that instantaneously bypass the painful emotions.

We can neutralize these substitution behaviors by identifying the emotional impulse that they seek to bypass and regulating that emotion. Once the emotion is regulated, there is no need to revert to the substitution behavior.

In addition to a regular daily practice of emotional regulation, you can also seek help from a qualified professional trained to connect physical and behavioral disorders with their underlying emotions, which they can then help you regulate directly.

These sessions require specialist know-how.
